About this Item: NY: Dodd, Mead, 1902. First edition, presumed second issue binding with "Dodd Mead / & Company" at the base of the spine. The American edition preceded the British one by 25 days. Tan pictorial cloth designed in green, white, blue, and black. Frontispiece & 11 inserted plates by Maurice Greiffenhausen and James F. Sullivan. Small spot at base of spine, some light shelf wear, but a handsome very good copy; the inner hinges have cracked (common with this book) and have been inexpertly repaired, resulting in some tears to the paper at the inner hinges. Still, a generally clean and nice-looking copy. This collection of stories contains the first appearance of "The Monkey's Paw", a famous and often anthologized horror story, as well as "The Well", a supernatural tale. Seller Inventory # 55267

About this Item: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, London and New York, 1902. First edition. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-3] 4-300, twelve inserted plates with illustrations by Maurice Greiffenhausen and James F. Sullivan, original pictorial brick red cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in black and gold, bottom edge untrimmed. The British edition was printed in the UK by William Clowes & Sons from the plates of Dodd, Mead's U.S. edition which preceded by 25 days. This mixed collection includes two supernatural tales, "The Well" and "The Monkey's Paw," the latter being Jacobs' most famous supernatural story and one of the modern classics of horror. Jacobs' supernatural stories "seem absolutely original. They are always terrible, and they are wonderful examples of the art, which I commend at the outset, of leaving a loophole for a rationalistic explanation, which is, after all, not quite practicable. You are sure that the ghost did intervene, but sometimes you will find it quite difficult to put your finger on the moment when it did so." - M. R. James, "Introduction," V. H. Collins, ed.

About this Item: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, London and New York, 1902. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-3] 4-300, twelve inserted plates with illustrations by Maurice Greiffenhausen and James F. Sullivan, original pictorial brick red cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in black and gold, bottom edge untrimmed. First British edition. The British edition was printed in England by William Clowes & Sons from the plates of Dodd, Mead's American edition which preceded it by 25 days. This mixed collection includes two supernatural tales, "The Well" and "The Monkey's Paw," the latter being Jacobs' most famous supernatural story and one of the modern classics of horror. Jacobs' supernatural stories "seem absolutely original. They are always terrible, and they are wonderful examples of the art, which I commend at the outset, of leaving a loophole for a rationalistic explanation, which is, after all, not quite practicable. You are sure that the ghost did intervene, but sometimes you will find it quite difficult to put your finger on the moment when it did so." - M. R. James, "Introduction," V. H. Collins, ed. Ghosts and Marvels . (1924). Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-105. Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 4-79. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 896.
